Cells are the building blocks of tissue, and tissues are the basic unit of function in the body. Generally, groups of cells make and secrete their own support structures, called extra-cellular matrix. This matrix, or scaffold, does more than just support the cells; it also acts as a relay station for various signaling molecules. Thus, cells receive messages from many sources that become available from the local environment. Each signal can start a chain of responses that determine what happens to the cell. By understanding how individual cells respond to signals, interact with their environment, and organize into tissues and organisms, researchers have been able to manipulate these processes to mend damaged tissues or even create new ones.

The process often begins with building a scaffold from a wide set of possible sources, from proteins to plastics. Once scaffolds are created, cells with or without a cocktail of growth factors can be introduced. If the environment is right, a tissue develops. In some cases, the cells, scaffolds, and growth factors are all mixed together at once, allowing the tissue to self-assemble.

Another method to create new tissue uses an existing scaffold. The cells of a donor organ are stripped and the remaining collagen scaffold is used to grow new tissue. This process has been used to bioengineer heart, liver, lung, and kidney tissue. This approach holds great promise for using scaffolding from human tissue discarded during surgery and combining it with a patients own cells to make customized organs that would not be rejected by the immune system.

Stem Cell Therapy, Amniotic Fluid Injections, Pain Relief

Posted: January 1, 2019 at 6:44 pm

Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Stacie Grossfeld discussing Stem Cell Therapy.

Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy is a safe and effective treatment to helpyour body heal itself. It is typically administered during a normal office visit, through asingle injection. Patients have reported improved pain relief and repair for the following conditions:

Stem Cell injections are conveniently administered through a single injection during a normal office visit. Following the injection, patients are typically able to return to everyday, non-high impact activities within 24 to 48 hours.

What benefits does Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy offer?

For more information about stem cell recruitment therapy, or to make an appointment, callOrthopaedic Specialists at a (502)212-2663. Follow along for more information about stem cell recruitment therapy.

Stem cells for stem cell recruitment therapy are obtained through amniotic fluid. Amniotic fluid contains a multitude of proteins and growth factors. Together they create an extra-cellular matrix to recruit the bodys stem cells to reconstruct and regenerate the injured tissue that is causing pain. Amniotic fluid can repair tissue damage, giving patients with arthritis, joint injuries and soft tissue injuries a treatment option that does not involve pain masking medications or surgery.

The amniotic fluid is obtained during full-term cesarean births from healthy donors who have volunteered their placenta and amniotic fluid. All amniotic fluid is collected aseptically and tested prior to processing and determined to be eligible for transplantation by Donors Suitability Standards established by the AATB and the FDA. The products we use are FDA regulated under the 21 CFR Part 1271 and Section 361 of the Public Health and Service Act.

Stem cells take advantage of the bodys ability to repair itself. With a stem cell injection, your physician injects the amniotic fluid containing stem cells into your body. The amniotic fluid has anti-inflammatory properties, similar to cortisone and steroid shots. However, amniotic fluid goes far beyond the benefits of standard injection therapy.

While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, amniotic fluid actually restores degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. The growth factors in the amniotic fluid may recruit your bodys own stem cells, directly mitigating the repair and the regeneration of healthy tissue. Additionally, amniotic fluid injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates joints and tendons, easing the pain and helping restore mobility.

Stem cells have over 200 growth factors. A growth factor is a proteins or enzyme that can grow cartilage, repair scars, reduce inflammation, take away pain, and grow bone. Astem cell can turn into any type of cell. Basically, it doesnt know what it wants to be when it grows up If you put it into the knee, it turns into the cells in the knee joint, it is an imitator so to speak, adapting to the environment where it is placed.

As we get older our stem cells get older. The amniotic stem cells are much more potent. The other advantage of the amniotic stem cells is that you do not have to have the painful procedure where stem cells are harvested out of your pelvis bone.

Typically it can take three to six weeks for a patient to feel the full effect of stem cell recruitment therapy. This is because the treatment utilizes the bodys own healing process.

Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Injuries and Arthritis

Utilizing your own stem cells to help the healing process of injured or degenerated jointsThe human body is made of billions of specialized cells that form specific organs like the brain, skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and bone. Each day these cells go through a degenerative and regenerative process. As older cells die, new cells are born from stem cells with the unique capability of being able to create multiple types of other cells. However, when tissues are injured, the degenerative process exceeds this regenerative process, resulting in structures that become weaker, painful and less functional. While there are several types of stem cells, those that are best at promoting musculoskeletal healing (tendon, ligament, cartilage and bone) are found in bone marrow. These mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs, are essential to successful patient outcomes and at Stem Cell ARTS we utilize the patented Regenexx Stem Cell Protocol, which iscapable of yielding much higher concentrations of these important cells.Most Commonly Treated Knee Conditions and InjuriesBelow is a list of the most common knee injuries and conditions that we treat with stem cells or platelet procedures. This is not an all-inclusive list.Knee Patient Outcome Data

This Regenexx bone marrow derived stem cell treatment outcome data analysis is part of the Regenexx data download of patients who were tracked in the Regenexx advanced patient registry.

Regenexx has published more data on stem cell safety in peer reviewed medical research for orthopedic applications than any other group world-wide. This is a report of 1,591 patients and 1,949 procedures treated with the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure. Based on our analysis of this treatment registry data, the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure is about as safe as any typical injection procedure, which is consistent with what we see every day in the clinic.

To use, begin playing the first video. Then use the Playlist Dropdown Menu in the upper left corner of the video display to show all video titles. Use the Scroll Bar on the right hand side of the playlist to browse all video titles if required.

These non-surgical stem cell injection procedures happen within a single day and may offer a viable alternative for those who are facing surgery or even joint replacement. Patients are typically able to return to normal activity following the procedure and are able to avoid the painful and lengthy rehabilitation periods that are typically required to help restore strength, mobility and range-of-motion following invasive joint surgeries. Lastly, patients are far less vulnerable to the risks of surgeries, such as infection and blood clots.

Modern techniques in todays medicine allows us to withdraw stem cells from bone marrow, concentrate them through a lab process and then re-inject them precisely into the injured tissues in other areas of the body using advanced imaging guidance. Through Fluoroscopy and MSK Ultrasound, were able to ensure the cells are being introduced into the exact area of need. When the stem cells are re-injected, they enhance the natural repair process of degenerated and injured tendons, ligaments, and arthritic joints Turning the tables on the natural breakdown process that occurs from aging, overuse and injury.

If you are suffering from a joint injury or degenerative condition such as osteoarthritis, you may be a good candidate for a stem cell procedure. Please complete the form below and we will immediately send you an email with additional information and next steps in determining whether youre a candidate for these advanced stem cell procedures.

Regenerative medicine is a powerful, new approach that harnesses the bodys ability to heal damaged tissue, offering new solutions to people with joint, tendon, and soft tissue injuries.The field of regenerative medicine includes innovative treatments, such as:

Stem cell therapy: Involves taking stem cells from different areas of the body, which can then be utilized in the form of therapeutic stem cell injections to promote the repair or regeneration of damaged tissue; stem cells are unique in their ability to develop into many different types of cells through a process called cell differentiation.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy: Uses platelets from the patients own blood to stimulate the bodys natural healing process.

Prolotherapy: Involves injecting medication into injured tissues to stimulate tissue regeneration.

Tissue engineering: The use of bio-artificial tissues and organs to repair or replace injured or diseased ones.

Harnessing the Power of the Bodys Own Healing Mechanisms

Our physicians are active in providing clinical care to patients who may benefit from regenerative medicine.

After diagnosing the damaged area, our physicians deliver specialized cells and growth factors to the site to promote cell regeneration and tissue repair. Treatment may include injections of platelet-rich plasma, as well as tissue-containing stem cells obtained from amniotic membranes.

Physicians at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City use this cutting-edge approach to treat a broad range of adults from athletes of all levels to those with degenerative joints as part of a comprehensive care plan tailored to each patient.

Treating an asthma attack without steroids? I didnt even know it was possible. I was having an asthma attack and scheduled for stem cell implantation that day. I called Dr. Frost, because I was afraid that the steroids urgent care would put me on would compromise the effectiveness of the stem cell treatment. Dr. Frost answered my call personally, helped calm me down and then said, He had a technique that would open my lungs without the use steroids.

He explained that certain nerves and vertebrae controlled different parts of the body. The thoracic (T3) vertebrae controlled the lungs. After using his technique to relieve the pressure off my lungs, I could immediately breathe. The next day, he used the same technique and I could breathe even better. Over the next few days, the lungs continued to open up on their own. I was completely amazed! With the wealth of knowledge, I am learning from Dr. Frost, I am an advocate of natural healing techniques and I dont feel alone in this fight in winning back my health.
